Two Card Bonus Day

Way back when, there was a time when I didn't own a pair of Paper Snips because Stampin' Up! didn't carry them! It was a sad time for sure and I avoided cutting anything, especially if it had a curved edge!! There is no way I would have cut out this heart without a pair of Paper Snips! Stampin' Up! sells Paper Snips for only$9.95 and they are worth their weight, no, more than their weight, in gold!!! I really just love to cut cardstock now!!!

Stampin' Up! has so many products and when I was pulling out things to use with this bundle, I was going crazy!! My table was covered!! I purchased the Red Bead Duo and the Pink Bead Duo and adhered them to the center of the flowers in heart using the Tombow Multi Adhesive glue. Those beads really added such a cute element to the heart!!!

When I get a package of Designer Series Paper, I usually just open up the top flap and flip through the pages. I just have to stop doing that because, you know, I miss stuff, like these birds on the bottom of one of the pages!!! This card was a piece of cake to make! All I had to do was cut off the corner of the DSP and adhere it to cardstock!!! Simple!!! I did also use the three Stampin' Up! oval punches that layer so nicely!!! I tied the Vanilla Taffeta ribbon about the card and, believe it or not, I pulled the taffeta ribbon through the holes in the Pink Designer Buttons from the Button Bouquet and tied the ribbon on top of the button!! A little hint in doing this is to make sure the ends of the ribbon are trimmed to a point. They slip right through the buttons!!!!!

I hope you are loving all these samples as much as I did while I was making them with my good friends!!!! Don't worry ... there are still some samples left to share, so don't forget to come back tomorrow!!!
